Tony Perkins, a Washington D.C. local hero and community icon is the co-anchor of FOX 5 News at 5pm & 10pm.
From 1999 to 2005, Tony was the weather forecaster and feature reporter for ABC's "Good Morning America", helping to take that show to within breathing distance of NBC's "Today" show in the heated network morning show wars. While he was with "Good Morning America", Tony contributed music, entertainment, and other features and segments to the show. He covered a wide range of events and locations in his years on the broadcast. He also frequently reported on location from weather disasters—often while they were occurring—including nearly twenty hurricanes. His work led to appearances and reports on Fox News Channel and CNN.
Tony's work on "Good Morning America"--and, in particular, his sense of humor (he used to be a stand-up comic)--brought him to other projects.
Tony Perkins first worked at WTTG-TV as co-anchor of "Fox Morning News" from 1998 to 1999, conducting interviews, doing feature segments and reviewing movies. Before that, he served as the show's weather personality starting in 1993, and his warm and often humorous presentation made him one of the most popular TV personalities in the nation's capitol.
Tony grew up in the Washington area, attending Mt. Vernon High School in Fairfax County, and the American University in Washington, D.C. He lives here with his wife and son.

My guest is KEVIN SPORT from the National televison show THE RIGHT PLACE WITH KEVIN SPORT that can be seen on RFD-TV!
"Am I in the right place?"
We all have asked that question more than once in our lives and not just when we are trying to go somewhere unfamiliar for vacation. Whenever we have ventured somewhere new in our lives and that place was not quite what we expected, we have experienced the doubt that causes us to ask the question: "Am I in the right place?" But who has the answer? Someone who has been there before.
Kevin Sport has been there before. From a young age, Sport knew music was at the core of his life. He dreamed of singing and songwriting his way into people's hearts through their radios. He packed up his guitar, left his hometown of Greenville, Alabama and headed to the country music capital of the world, Nashville, Tennessee. But after some time there, Sport's dream did not materialize as he expected. He began to doubt he was in the right place and even if he had the right dream. Defeated, he came back home to southern Alabama and threw his guitar under the bed. Sport explains, "I felt that I had missed my chance because of the direction my personal life and the harsh realities of the business side of music. I should move on to something else."
But the dream did not die, even though Sport may have denied it. While he pushed music away, music remained a part of him and his family and friends knew it. Consequently, those who knew and loved Sport, began to encourage him to fish out the guitar from under the bed and begin once again to share his music, not just with them, but also with anyone who finds enjoyment and meaning in music. Sport remembers, "People always asked me, ‘Are you still singing? Are you still pursuing music, and if not, then why?'"
